Siniel Shetty confirmed in a comment that the Hera Pheri franchise is aware of the audience’s demand for a third movie. However, he added, that there are certain differences that need to be cleared up first.
He said, “Everything is on hold for now. The film’s team intends to make Hera Pheri 3 but some differences need to be ironed out. It is a big hit on television as well as in the meme world and we are all aware of the anticipation among the audience.”
The first movie, Hera Pheri, came out in 2000 and was directed by Priyadarshan, starring Suniel Shetty, Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Tabu. The film became a cult hit as soon as it was released, and was later followed by a sequel, Phir Hera Pheri, in 2006.
In the first part’s 20th anniversary, Shetty recalled all the factors that made Hera Pheri the success it is today. He said, “It just happened. We arrived on the sets every morning, the costumes were basically just stretched and given to us, not even ironed. The director would ask us to sleep on newspapers. He said, ‘I don’t want you to be comfortable. When you get up, you should have rested but stay uncomfortable.’ We wore no makeup. Akshay Kumar, me and Paresh jee were constantly together, rehearsing our lines.”
